By Nenad N. Bach and Darko Žubrinić | Published 06/20/2019 | Education , Culture And Arts | Unrated

France and Croatia shared a victory celebration together going back to 1648, when Croatia won the Thirty Years' War for France and Louis XIV celebrated with a parade in Paris to honor the Croatian soldiers, who were wearing red cravats, by having Royalty and ordinary Parisians wear similar cravats made by Louis XIV's tailors. France fell in love with the cravat, as well as the other European countries, and thus began the history of the necktie that evolved in design, shape, fabric, and color for more than four hundred years to the present. Daddazio's designs are a re-invention of the necktie with the added feature of a pocket for a cellphone that makes it practical and functional for this new millennium.

» Hrvojka Mihanovic-Salopek: Veneration of the Blessed Virgin Mary in the Diocese of Gospić-Senj
We often travel to the Adriatic coast through the spacious, desolate, forested and mountainous expanses of Lika, without being aware that there used to be a highly developed center of medieval Croatian culture and Glagolitic scriptoria. Although the brutal Ottoman invasions wrought devastation, we are attracted to the residual traces of the original old Croatian civilization. This is Hrvojka Mihanovic-Salopek's 11th DVD from the series Stella Maris of Croatia (Croatian Mariological heritage).
